Is there a maximum attainable beard thickness? Sometimes cheese gets in your beard. It's a sad fact of life, but there it is.

A fine cheese to go with your favorite bread, toasted, with beverage of your choice. How many creatures can attack another creature. Aggresso absurdum

That's a picture of Venger, the force of evil and villain of the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon show from the mid-80s. He was voiced by Peter Cullen, a.k.a. Optimus Prime and Eeyore the donkey. Venger has wings and can fly. He rides a horse that does not have wings, yet also can fly. The show is campy and did not age well, but I recommend watching it anyway. ...

Spaulding the Troll said "I'd rather eat cheese than stirge" But Judge Smails said "You'll eat stirge and like it, Spaulding!" Quadratic Wizard has shown how the troll-stirge mutual dining ecosystem works. Not the fast food joint I want to visit. The stirges have, so far, said nothing. They are too busy eating and breeding.

As requested, the D&D 3.5 edition of the fastest character. Notable for the inclusion of not one but two “theoretical-optimization” builds and world-record holders (for highest speed and highest Diplomacy check, respectively). The first, Chuck E. Cheese, can break (by a significant margin) the speed of light. Chuck E. Cheese is the only TO build I am ...

We have the tower of rage, stack 'o mounts that has raging barbarians, all the way down. Best served with a red wine, and rye crackers. As the creator observes: Awakened Cat Barbarian riding a Gnome Barbarian riding an Orc Barbarian/Warchanter with war Drums riding a Minotaur Barbarian riding a Huge-Ass War-Mammoth is essentially 90% of the point of ...

Not quite a superlative, but still darn cheesy: Can a Wizard cast a spell strong as a small nuke? In which we learn specifically about the Locate City bomb, which combines some metamagic which pushes people out of a spell's radius, and metamagic which deals a bit of damage from distance travelled, with a spell with a radius hundreds of miles wide, helping ...

A certain user made some comments on my very first answer that have stuck with me. Their comments helped shape my perspective of this stack. They're probably the reason I feel so strongly about what we're trying to do here. I made my first answer, and this user started making comments about how my answer could be improved, how the language and argument could ...

In-laws like cheese, right? What's the greatest number of hands I can have to annoy my mother-in-law with? It is the most important question of our time.

I think we'd be open to specific designated "fun" questions as long as people don't suddenly open others and flood us with low qual questions. We could do something like this as part of a specific initiative. How would you propose a charsheet show-off to work, just posting an image of the sheet (probably with a max size, so one person's 6 page char sheet ...

Surprisingly, this post of mine is a generator of both metaphorical - and literal - cheese! Can you milk an Ivory Goat? Not sure if entirely relevant here (although the possibility of generating food at a steady rate without expending spell slots is certainly cheesy), but you know... goat cheese and stuff.

I can't really remember why I joined. I think it was to find an answer to an odd D&D question since I got back in to D&D, after a long lay off, in 2014. As a result of this site, I got to play D&D 5e with a group of Chatizens (people who were discussing various stuff in chat) where we had one player in Guam (trogdor) two on the east coast (...

Is there a limit to the number of Unseen Servants I can have? Is Unseen Servant use and abuse cheese, is it silly fun, or is it both? We find yet another tasty Ementhal here in the asking of how many Unseen Servants can one have active at a time, with the linked answer being 600, made particularly pleasing by the additional flavor in the comment under the ...

I'm kinda ambivalent about this one. I'm not sure this thread really represents a direct analogy to the Tex.SE "fun" threads. My understanding is that the Tex.SE showcase threads are, in part, about teaching. Each of the answers is implicitly saying "Here is a cool trick I know," or "Let me teach you about writing elegant code." That makes them potentially ...

By the power of Grayskull manual scrolling! This post seems to have the most stars with 20: And this post comes in second place at 18:

We've got some Hall of Fame material right here. You can shoot any kind of ammunition out of any kind of weapon that uses ammunition. Personally, I can't wait to start firing blowgun needles from my longbow - 50 shots instead of 20, for the same price and weight!

For sheer absurd argumentation, I doubt anything will ever top the dragonwrought kobold: true dragon? controversy, which I have tried to document. Covering the minutiae of at least three books as well as getting extremely technical about the rules regarding each one’s precedence (and no small amount of intense arguments over semantics in the English language)...

I haven't been active on the site for the past... 5 years, or so? I've been reading the Main but haven't been coming into Meta or Chat anymore. But still, 10 years is a very impressive feat for one of the nicest, most consistently thoughtful sites I've had the pleasure of seeing, where moderator and community action consistently felt like an exercise in how ...

Shoutout to everyone that makes the community here great And I generally mean everyone and anyone. I spent countless hours when I should've been working just helping and being helped on RPG questions or hanging out in chat and listening to funny stories and live experiences of those in RPG.SE chat exposing me to a wide range of players and GMs. There is a ...

I think the time has passed on this one. We already have the one apex lifeform question littering the site. If the proposal isn't "delete that and start again with this one," we don't want a second incarnation of a questionable thing. You say "the intent is not to duplicate it" but this is duplicating it with 5% change thrown in. There's not a problem ...

This is rapidly turning into a Gorilla vs Shark question, but with more problematic bits. Like "what's a dragon?" and "where do the edges of 'mythological' fall?" I’m gonna take a step back. This was originally not about "who can beat up a dragon?" but about "what can be used in place of dragons when designing an adventure?" That might be framable in ...


7

Ultimately, the apex lifeform question stuck around for 1 reason, and 1 reason only: it had value. There are people building campaign settings, or working on games who can refer to these kinds of lists to develop non-human, non-dragon overarching bad guy types. This question, basically is either a soliciation of same, or an invitation to develop homebrew ...

Kobolds and Traffic Tickets What is the farthest someone can travel in 8 hours without teleporting? How fast a kobold tribe can move across country to take advantage of housing prices has an answer here, thanks to David Coffron. We recommend this gouda cheese to be thin sliced, toasted on sliced baguette, and served with a dry white wine. No fast food, ...

How do you efficently create the biggest demiplane?: A Pathfinder spellcaster is having trouble with the itty-bitty living space which their phenomenal cosmic powers are limited to creating. The create demiplane spell just doesn't create a demiplane big enough! The Dark Wanderer replies by helping them understand how to make a killing on the real estate ...

According to wikipedia, this is also called a Sexton. And it might be useful.

I have a lot of good memories from this site, none of them terribly exciting but it has definitely been the most meaningful online community I've ever been involved with. Coming to this site as someone who only played PF/D&D I'm happy to say that people here have exposed me to so many different things, from small one page (or even 1 word!) RPGs to Safety ...

Inceptum ad Absurdum How high can a PC's initiative bonus get? @T.J.L. has offered a way to get ridiculous boosts to initiative in this answer. Being able to get a +53 + 1d10 to a d20 roll for initiative means "I Go First" is finally assured. (No, that doesn't make the character a spot light hog, why do you ask?) Such a character can always be first, ...

I think a small number of questions of this type, reasonably curated, is beneficial. What is the benefit of having them here rather than somewhere else: Build Community. We want out people on this site, thinking about each other, and as a group. Knowing what cool things people have done, helps build a sense of community. Attract Experts. We want ...

Answer 1: because people make new tags every day for all kinds of bizarre reasons. Answer 2: to tag its specialness as an allowed question not meeting the guidelines, I assume. Based on that assumption I have changed the tag to just-for-fun, given it a tag wiki explaining the setup, and added this information to the meta question that spawned it, Just For ...
